Founding Moms Subscribers
We collect personal information such as your: (i) contact information (including name, telephone number, email and shipping address); (ii) financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date, verification number and billing address); (iii) username and password (specifically chosen by you or your social media user name/handle); (iv) demographic information (including age, birthdate and gender); and (v) preferences and behavior (such as record of ratings, comments, areas of interests, types of deals that interest you). Once you register, you have opted in to receive electronic communications from Founding Moms. Founding Moms may also provide you with the opportunity to participate in surveys through our Services. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information. You can choose to subscribe to one of our free electronic newsletters or sign up for a member account. Participation in surveys is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether to disclose such information. In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with requested information, you may not be able to access all of the great content we provide.
If you so choose, you may connect to and/or register an account using an external third-party application, such as ‘Facebook’, ‘Twitter’, ‘Pinterest’ and “LinkedIn”. Founding Moms may receive some data from such connected third-party applications. Connecting your account to third-party applications and/or services is optional, and when you connect your account to an external application, you will be given the opportunity to grant permission. You can revoke the foregoing permissions under your account settings and/or with the external third-party application. Depending on which services you choose to use, Founding Moms may require additional information and contact information.
